Al Hensley
Blue Monday - Monday 12:00 noon to 2:00 p.m.

Click on the "play" button to listen to show promo  

bluemonday@noosacommunityradio.org

A founding member of the station, Al has been presenting Blues on 101.3FM since its inception. He launched "Blue Monday" when the station extended its broadcasting beyond weekends. Al is a veteran Blues musician who played in Brisbane's Union Blues Band. He continues to play professionally with The Big Easy, a Rhythm-and-Blues band he formed with fellow station members, Jim Toomey and Tad Graham, in 1996. They played for two years with the station's first President, singer-songwriter, Barry Charles, and have actively participated in many station fund-raising events.

Al has served on various committees including Management, Human Resources, Training and Production. He contributes monthly reviews of Blues CDs for the national Roots music magazine, Rhythms.

Al has a passion for African-American music, especially authentic Blues, of which he has gained a vast knowledge. He has made several visits to various locales in the USA where the music evolved and has strong affinities with Louisiana.

Blue Monday is a unique Blues program in that it covers, as well as contemporary Blues, a wide variety of traditional, vintage and historical material. The format also includes other Blues-based genres from the same melting pot, like Rhythm-and-Blues, Soul, Funk and Zydeco.

There's always a broad range of music from acoustic country Blues to horn-driven urban sounds, from Jazz-influenced Blues to Roots-Rock inspired styles, and from harmonica/guitar-based music to piano-oriented Blues. You'll hear legendary male and female singers, Australian Blues artists and also Cajun music, with its roots in the Afro-American/Creole culture. Focusing on the "big picture", Blue Monday aims to entertain the Blues fraternity with interesting anecdotes on the music, while drawing new fans to this rich musical heritage.

feeling@noosacommunityradio.org

Please ignore the moustache it was my contribution to last year's "Movember" appeal and has now been removed. It had been 26 years since I last wore one, though I think I will go again this year, it is to raise money and awareness for men's mental health and prostate problems. At Noosa Community Radio we believe in contributing to the good of the community.

Let's get back to the radio issues. The More Than A Feeling journey began on the 10th of August 2002. I thoroughly enjoy presenting each show and I hope that you, the audience, gets just as much pleasure from listening. My aim is to play music those other stations tend not to play, though you will hear a few "hits". It's a great opportunity for me to provide you with a genuine alternative to mainstream radio.

Australian music is high on the agenda and I do like to promote local and or independent artists. At the radio station we are provided on a regular basis with loads of new Aussie music/talent from AMRAP (Australian Music Radio Airplay Project) and I play many of these artist's on the show. Who knows, the next "big thing" could be up next on the More Than A Feeling program, why not be the first to hear it.

If you are a recording artist then contact me at the station, we can possibly help get your material on the airwaves either by performing live or recorded medium or promote any upcoming gigs.

Please tune in, you just might be very pleasantly surprised and remember, it's nice to be important but it's important to be nice.

Click on the "play" button to listen to show promo  

chillblainsblues@noosacommunityradio.org

Blues, Rock 'n Roots and whatever sounds good to me.

Tune in for great music, gig information, interviews of local, interstate and overseas artists - with a bent towards Blues. 101.3FM offers wonderful support to all kinds of live music and of course, our local community and spreading the word about our beautiful part of the world.

This original ten-pound export from the UK put down roots on the east coast, entrenched as a "bean counter" and eventually fled the corporate life from Sydney to the Sunshine Coast. Motorsport held me enthralled for many years as a rally driver and events coordinator in various roles. I can still count but hung up the helmet to focus on the Blues and Roots scene. My love of Blues music brought me to 101.3FM and the desire to contribute to the community. They don't call me "motormouth" for no reason! I have been known to dress for the occasion (and heels) - my wife takes bookings (not). I also MC at various music festivals around the country.

Hope to see you around the coast, Brisbane and festivals further afield, supporting the music.

Hi, I'm Debbie Noyek, one of our radio station's Irish leprechauns.†Why not save an air fare to Ireland ... and experience instead all the shenanigans waiting for you on "IRISH COFFEE".

Presenting this program is a real pleasure for me. It's packed to the rafters with traditional and modern Irish ballads, jigs and reels and general leaping about. There's also plenty of Irish humour and, of course, a dollop of oul blarney thrown in too (when you least expect it).

Do please join me on my musical trip to the Emerald Isle, because it just wouldn't be the same without you.

On "THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD", you'll not only hear all the words of the songs (!) but also some of the world's best-loved music from people like Connie Francis, Dean Martin, Andrea Bocelli, Dusty Springfield, Perry Como, Rosemary Clooney, Pat Boone, Ella, Neil Diamond and so on. What's more, the program's presented with a light-hearted Irish approach, and it's soooo easy on your ears you won't feel a thing!

Doug Gorman
Diggin' with Doug - Friday noon to 2:00 p.m.

Click on the "play" button to listen to show promo  

digginwithdoug@noosacommunityradio.org

Hi All

This is the lowdown on the Diggin' With Doug show. On Fridays at high noon I slip into the presenter's chair, put on my earphones and slide my theme into the music machine. It's a track out of New Orleans called, "I Like It Like That". At 12:05, right after the midday news, I hit the music button - yours and mine. Midway through the track I let you know you're on Noosa Community Radio 101.3FM and invite you to "C'mon in and listen to the Diggin' With Doug show". And that's it folks, there is no holding back until 2:00 p.m.. The beat goes on!

After a few pleasantries it's time for my own unofficial weather forecast. I may just be the only person on the planet that makes up their own forecast and then sings it on air - that's right folks, I sing the weather forecast! I then throw in a few giggles before bringing you wall to wall music with a brief break for my wine report just after 1:00 p.m..

The music and how it is linked together is the "tour de force" - it's different. Some play just rock 'n roll, some just the blues, country perhaps, some just jazz or soul, world etc. but I play it all and more. From way back when until now, music to make you jump and jive, dance and sing. It's total fun in the sun.

Originally from Edinburgh, Scotland, I was found "rockin" in the cradle. Sport and music were my game and I later came out to Oz on a professional soccer contract. In between times I sang with a Rock n' Roll band and sang standards at a Sydney restaurant before joining international airlines. I travelled so many times around the world and Australia, listened to so much music that my head is continually in a spin but always spinning in the right direction and that's the direction I take you on the Diggin' With Doug show.

I have been on air since 2002 with Noosa Community Radio and seen the station grow, always improving to the point that the CBAA voted us the No. 1 community station in Australia - now that's hot!

So that's it folks, don't forget to tune into the Diggin' With Doug show every Friday at high noon and there I will rock 'n roll with you.

Hello

I've been involved with Noosa Community Radio 101.3FM since 2005, firstly as a volunteer receptionist. While I still volunteer as a stand-in on the reception desk, I completed the in-house Presenter Course in 2007 and have been on air since November 2007. I am a 50+ grandma with a love of music that covers many genres, hence the name of my programme. I love being a part of 101.3FM and would encourage anyone with a little time on their hands to become a member as there is always the opportunity to not only make new friends but learn something new.

Whether you enjoy a little toe tapping, a song or two in the shower or simply putting your feet up with a cuppa, I invite you to tune in on Tuesday mornings. Your feedback or requests on the above email address will be welcome.

Cheers

Gayle Nicholson

Joy Ringrose
Classic Black - Wednesday 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Click on the "play" button to listen to show promo  

Joy believes that Classical Music is timeless, and that modern classical music now has African roots: Jazz, Blues, Rhythm and Blues, Soul and Reggae. Also that in hundreds of yearsí time people will still enjoy hearing the best artists performing this music. Black is the new Classic and vice versa.

Joy was brought up in a Jazz/Blues loving household where all forms of Afro-American music were enjoyed. She has also lived in Jamaica and London gaining a love of Afro-Caribbean music. She plays piano and guitar and is currently learning to play the steel drums.

She joined NCR in because of the Jazz, Blues and Soul content of its airwaves, and quickly became a newsreader and the secretary of the Programming Committee. She is currently secretary of the News Committee. Joy is also a PCAQ Pony Club instructor.

Her other current areas of learning are: yoga, dressage, show jumping and piano.

Joy thinks that Noosa Community Radio is an important part of our community, and urges people in the district to support our local station with either sponsorship, membership or voluntary work as we really are "The Voice of Noosa".

A Little Peace of My World - Thursday 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Click on the "play" button to listen to show promo  

alittlepeace@noosacommunityradio.org

Hi everyone, I joined NCR in 1999, through a "synchronistic" coincidence thatís had me in the hot seat ever since. It started with a trip to the "Symbolic Journey" spiritual store in Noosa Junction, owned at the time by Brian Panisset and his wife Linda. Long story short... Brian and Linda came into the restaurant I was working in at the time. I happened to be waitressing instead of out the back cooking, Brian looked familiar, so I eventually asked if we knew each other (mind you I did notice Linda's eyebrows raise :-). He said he didn't recognise me and it wasn't till he mentioned the store that it rang a bell. I sat talking to them for about half an hour, with me doing most of the talking ;-). Then when Linda had the chance to get a word in... she said, "Have you ever thought of having your own radio program?" Brian is a member of Noosa Community Radio and there is a course starting soon... and you do like a chat!"... And here I am, still talking ;-).

Iíve never been that interested in who sings the song or who plays the instruments. It was always if my ears and heart enjoyed the sound, then that is what I played. Laid back music works best for me as I am an Aries and I am always on the go, so I need the balance to keep me from flying off the edge of the planet.†I was always interested in the spiritual side of life and like most of us I started noticing that the world held on to a lot of negative thoughts and actions and I wanted to hear and talk about the more positive side of life.†Spirituality comes in many beliefs and what I try to do on the program is bring a broad field of information from as many areas as I can. Health and environmental issues are also high on my list of topics. Guest speakers from all walks and beliefs have and will continue to chat on the program. I donít really like to call them interviews, because they are more like "you and I" sitting around the kitchen table having a cuppa, very laid back and casual. I wanted to plant seeds in people's minds and leave the watering up to them. So "A Little Peace of my World" was born out of those ideals.

I've been in the hot seat since 1999, and I have to say, out of all the things I have done up till now, this program has given me the most rewards. Iíve met people who have left me speechless (and believe me, thatís hard to do ;-) with their triumphs, struggles and attitude. Iíve been blessed to have been part of some listeners' lives, where a part of my show has given them the strength to get through or change their direction.

We are all connected upon this "space ship" we call home, we're all the same colour on the inside and our most common trait... is that we all got here the same way and will leave the same way. We are renting this planet and at times Iíve wondered if I was the owner, would I keep the tenants... Iíve wondered could I destroy another human being... I know there would be times where it could mean my life or theirs, but could I actually stare into someoneís eyes and put out the flame of life. Iíve wondered if there is someone or something out there thatís a greater force than what we see in front of us. I donít have the answers, but I keep looking. I could go on, but I wonít... you will just have to tune into the show ;-). Believe in the unbelievable, because a lot of what we believe in today was once unbelievable.

Click on the "play" button to listen to show promo  

celticconnection@noosacommunityradio.org

I found Noosa Community Radio 101.3FM on a search for a local community radio station. I was already a presenter with a community broadcaster in Redcliffe, Qld. At the time I was living occasionally at our beach shack at Marcoola Beach with my wife, Julie.

I was retired with a free timetable so I took up the opportunity to do the presenter course.

It was a good course and my special thanks go to Bob Owen, my mentor on the broadcast panel. It was fun.

I was born in Forfar, Scotland, although I lived in Brechin, Angus. I remember my primary teacher, a severe Miss MacGregor...she taught us us proudly how we trounced the English at Bannockburn in 1314. Later I found my contemporary English pupils had no knowledge of Scotland.

My ports of call were Barnoldswick, Lancashire, London before the big wheel was built and Brisbane. I have worked in technical support positions in pathology, school education, nurse education and teacher education. I am also handy with a camera and I collect books, mainly about military history. I often write letters to the local newspaper. We live such complex lives.

The Celts left us with many wonderful works of art from the silence of the grave.

We can now rejoice with music and song about those lands of Celtic culture.

Join me and rekindle your heart felt thoughts for those people and places, some across the sea, for auld lang syne.

Slainte mhath,

Lawrance

If you are out in the car driving or at home at the end of the day, then tune into Cruise Control, a show full of driving and housework distractions in the form of good music, fun interviews, movie reviews and even some news.

Linda, originally from Melbourne, has lived in Peregian since 2007 and found that by joining 101.3FM, she established a fast track way to a sense of "belonging" in the Noosa community.

Linda has been a long-time devotee of the radio waves and is now thrilled to be part of the on-air crew.

My country of origin is the Philippines, where I grew up and had my early schooling, through to high school. I obtained a Bachelor of Science in Education (Elementary and High School) degree. I was then able to take up teaching at a prestigious college. While teaching, I continued studying a Bachelor of Science in Social Worker.

Having an inquiring mind, I was able to come to Australia in my late twenties. I travelled extensively for six months in eastern Australia and decided to live in Noosa where I've been since 1988.

I have been a part of Noosa Community Radio for the last 13 years. I helped in the many initiatives to raise money for the equipment. Finally I took the in-house presenter course and have been on air since 2000. Andrew Tucker, one of the founders, was my trainer.

Music is part of my life. I used to play guitar and love singing. On my show, I play local and world popular music and present information on ethnic topics and events.

Health and happiness are more important to me than wealth and status. I am very much a community minded person.

"Salamat" - thank you!

I have always loved music, as a brat and expected to practise piano for hours, I retaliated by playing "Who Killed Cock Robin" and "Frere Jacques" repeatedly & ad nauseam.

My mother sang and constantly played light classical music which irritated me no end, Tchaikovsky was far too airy for me, I preferred more stirring rhythms, Russian Marches, Gregorian Chants, Wagner, Brahms & Beethoven. Bought up in the era of the Beetles and Janis Joplin as a student I graduated to Motown, Smoky Jazz, Blues, Soul, Poetry Readings and Little Theatre.

I discovered Leonard Cohen in Ď72 when he was touring Aus. Life was never the same for me or my neighbours, they actually begged me to play any other C.D! (Many people consider Cohenís songs as "music to slash your wrists by" but I am constantly amazed by his gift, his acute lyrics.

Leonard Cohen can put more meaning into one sentence than I can into an entire chapter. In Cohen's words, "There was a chord that David played to please the Lord, It went like this, the 4th the 5th but you donít really care for music do you?" I canít imagine a worse insult or a life without music.

To me life and living has always been about community and sharing, friends, music, art, the ocean, freedom, flying (tiger moths), and making a positive difference.

I have found my community in Noosa Community Radio, a bunch of generous, sharing, helpful, music loving, like-minded people who volunteer to put our local and Aussie artists out there in the community. N.C.R offers Radio Presenter training programmes which are fun affordable and huge link to our very own Sunshine Coast community. Join up, have your own programme and become a part of our fun, family getting it out there on the air waves.

Love doing my show on 101.3FM, listening to and playing great music, getting to meet and interview some wicked local musos on air is a plus. Iím passionate about the local community and community involvement. Iím writing a book at the moment and I am building a website along with other interested musicians with the aim of commencing a fortnightly musical gig in the Noosa, Tewantin area to involve local talented artists and musicians. Would love your feedback on my show, please email me at mirinsmix@noosacommunmityradio.org.

Randall Scott
Altered Ego - Saturday 8:00 p.m. to late

Hi my name is Randall Scott (actually, it's my stage name). Iíve always wanted to be "on-air" as a radio announcer since I was a kid.

I would try and fill the spaces between the songs on my mum & dad's tapes. Needless to say they werenít overly happy at my attempts (because I erased a lot of easy listening music).

Since then I have bounced and wandered from job to job, never really finding anything to inspire the deep passion for radio that I had as a kid. Now Iíve been given the chance right here at Noosa 101.3FM.

I completed the in-house Presenter Course in 2008 and have been on air since February 2009. Every Thursday night from 9pm till late (Special thanks to all involved and your encouragement). By joining the 101.3FM Family, Iíve found a sense of belonging within the Noosa community while making heaps of new friends.

I have a love of music that covers many genres, but I mainly play hip-hop, rap, rock and dance from as much Australian talent - known and unknown - that I can dig up.

So I invite you sit back and relax and allow the music to wash over you and soothe away your troubles, at least for a little while and get your groove on.

Peace Grooves & Tattoos.

What would you buy for $800?

In 1959 Berry Gordy Junior, an African American man borrowed this amount from his family. He made a phenomenon change to music when he founded the Motown Records.

Hi am The Rev Lol, and just like, Berry Gordy, I will put my determination in giving you the listeners the very best of Motown Soul.

I have a wide range of likeness to most music, I enjoy playing Motown and Soul., which I will be playing the old and the new songs every Wednesday evening, between 8:00 and 10:00 p.m.

You will need to prepare your drinks and snacks early as you will be glued to your seats for two hours.

Each week I will be trying to find out who's smarter!!! The Ladies v The Men to see who can win a great prize by naming four clips of music.....

The Magic of Motown will be adored by thousands...

...so join me, Lawrence Russell

Your Wednesday evening is about to change...

thebackdoorstep@noosacommunityradio.org

"The Backdoorstep" presents original artists performing locally. It was conceived to provide marketing assistance and air time to original contemporary Australian and local musicians and to deliver quality programming to Sunshine Coast listeners. It gives them exposure to talent appearing locally on our Backdoorstep. Music by artists who have appeared on "The Backdoorstep" has been compiled in a CD to promote the artists and raise funds for 101.3FM. (Click here to have a look at the Noose Sound Waves CD).

Music from local original singers and song-writers, who have dedicated themselves to their field to the point of producing a quality demo or commercial product, is aired to help the performers to reach an audience and to give listeners information enabling to enjoy and support live local talent on our Backdoorstep. Rob provides information on performance dates, availability of musical product, musical influences and interviews, encouraging listeners to experience first hand the art of live musical performance.

Hi, I'm Rob Ruger. Before the Friday Drive Show, I presented the show LET THERE BE ROCK for some time and over this period, I have really felt privileged to be able to share my passion for rock music on air. This is due to Noosa Community Radio's excellent training and support provided by its members, plus the unique platform that only the community radio sector can provide for new talent. Having performed in bands for many years myself and producing 14 CDs in my own studio, I hope to contribute some of the experiences I have had in the music industry and to help local emerging artists.

(Be sure to tune in!)

Regards, Rob Ruger
